Ways to keep kids engaged, happy and entertained while they wait

P

atience is not a strong
virtue in children.
Eventually, they will
acquire it, but until then, if you
want your youngest customers to
hold it together while they wait for
their pizzas to arrive and ensure
that their parents will patronize
your establishment again (with or
without kids), you'll have to make
the waiting game fun to play.
Depending on your space,
resources and focus on family
friendliness, your kid-centric activities can range from simple coloring
sheets and activity pages to more
complex endeavors like play scapes,
arcades and hands-on pizza prep.

But whatever you choose to do to
entertain your young diners, be sure
you're ready for their reaction as
well as the reaction of your other
guests.
"A kids' area is a big part of our
brand, but if you're going to do a
dedicated kids' space, you have to
think how it will affect the flow
of your restaurant," says Brewer
Stouffer, founder and CEO of The
Roman Candle.
According to Stouffer, if you
cater to families, they will come.
While that is great, it also means
you might be alienating other
guests who are looking for some
peace and quiet or a date night out.

"WE THINK OF KIDS AS A
DRIVING FORCE IN OUR
BUSINESS, SO WE WANTED
TO MAKE IT A POINT TO
CATER TO THEM FROM
DAY ONE."
